New, safer Delaney Drop Off Plan!

All adults will have to remain in their vehicles so please practice having your  children exit your car quickly with their belongings.
If you determine that your child needs assistance, you will need to park in a designated space.


  • ALL Delaney student drop-offs, grades K-3, will follow this route.
  • Staff members will provide assistance during this process to ensure student safety.
  • Vehicles will pull up and come to a complete stop.
  • Adults must remain in the vehicle.
  • ALL students must exit the vehicle on the driver side (LEFT).
  • Student must cross in front of their parent’s vehicle if they exit from the front passenger seat.
  • If arrival is after 8:20, or your child requires your assistance, please park in a designated parking space and escort your child into the building.
  • We will try this during September and assess the effect on safety.
Students cannot purchase sparkling water during school hours. Water and milk are available for purchase during lunch time.
